i •9 SAMARA June 1964 " SUCCESS IS NAUGHT: ENDEAVOUR ' S ALL ' - Browning Barbara Fletcher, Head Girl; Mrs. Blyth, Headmistress; Wendela Roberts, Senior Prefect. Head Mistress ' Letter Dear Elmwood, I have only just discovered that the word " school " comes from a Greek word which means " leisure. " This was an interesting discovery because I imagine that most of you would not associate school with that word and you would probably meet with some disapproval if your days at Elmwood were all spent in a leisurely way! The Greeks did not think of learning as resting, either, but they did believe that a good education taught a boy to use his spare-time well. And so we find the Athenians flocking to the theatre day after day for the fun of it— not watching second-rate plays such as we see so often on TV and the movies, but listening intently to stories about the deepest and most real issues of human life as they were presented on the stage. Their dramas have survived the test of over two thousand years and are still being read and acted today. The world that is waiting for you when you leave Elmwood looks as if it is going to offer you more spare time than man has ever known before. We are told that automation will soon reduce the working-week to three days. All the up-to-date gadgets that are being invented to make housework quicker and easier are already giving women more free time. How are you going to use all these leisure hours ? Will you be bored or will you be able to fill these long times of recreation richly and profitable in the service of God and other people. The training for leisure starts at school, as the Greeks knew, and so I would urge you to read about and ponder the wonderful world in which you live, to paint and sew and make music to write poems and stories and plays (even if they never get as far as the Samara) and to keep your minds alert to the kind of lives that people are living, far away from Canada. Sui Sang, our adopted son in Hong-Kong, has opened our eyes, hasn ' t he, to the poverty and overcrowding of Chinese children? There is so much for you to do now and when you grow up and so many opportunities for you to make this world a more blessed place because you have been born. Robert Bridges tells us to be busy making and doing worthwhile things even if it seems that they do not all amount to a row of beans. " We may not end up as female Picassos or Richard Burtons, but we shall have been givers not getters: I love all beauteous things, I seek and adore them; God hath no better praise. And man in his hasty days. Is honoured for them. I too will something make And joy in the making; Altho ' to-morrow it seem Like the empty words of a dream Remembered on waking. God bless you all. Your affectionate friend and headmistress, a PREFECTS FRONT ROW: Cathy Duff, Wendela Roberts, Mrs. J.

" We feel that this statement is very true of Elmwood. We have many traditions which we treasure, among the most important of them our morning prayer service. This begins the day in the proper spirit and teaches us to face any difficulties with courage. Another important activity (although a fairly recent one) is the Annual Charity Public Speaking Contest. From these speeches we learn about the troubles and problems of those less fortunate than ourselves Aside from these charities, we have also adopted a young Chinese child -Yung Sui Sang. He has done a great deal for us, in making us realize the true meaning of gratitude. This little boy is so genuinely thankful for the smallest contribution that we make that we begin to feel a sense of family membership with him - caring about him and hoping he cares about us. Our standard of behaviour is high, although admittedly we do not always live up to it. We do try, however, and the general impression that visitors have of our school is of a happy and well-disciplined group of girls. This is what a good school can offer. The classes are small, so that an enforced, regimented type of discipline is not necessary. We feel that the most valuable type of discipline is self-discipline. All our efforts at Elmwood are directed towards this goal. We hope that everyone will long cherish the traditions which have come to mean ' Elmwood ' ! Best of luck to all! NOTES OF INTEREST It was with regret that we said ' Good-bye ' to Mrs. Olive Mott who was our Matron for a number of years. Congratulations to: Mrs. R. F.

Keller House is, however, comprised of Boarding School girls only. The day girls are divided between Fry and Nightingale. It is through these three Houses that House and School spirit arises and competition is keen. The school demerit system is chanelled through the Houses and in this way each girl is responsible to her House. All academic achievements, sports, and often behavior are important to the success of each House. At the completion of the School year the points of each House are totalled and the one with the highest score wins the cup presented to the House Head. This year we have had certainly three splendid House Heads who have tried in every way to create strong House spirit and inter-House competition. Barbara Fletcher HEAD OF HOUSE: Cathy Duff.

Fry House Notes Dear Fry, This note is not meant to be just another paragraph in the Samara. It is meant really to mean something! The message it contains is this: - Many thanks to you for being what you are. I think the best house in Elmwood. Fry has done well this year in sports, academically and especially in putting into action these words - " Friendship to All " I know you will make 1964-65 a bigger and better for the next head of Fry.

Keller House Notes Dear Kellerites, Once again it is June and the close of another year. For six of us it is our final year and the end of our boarding school life. But just before we leave let us look back upon the past year. In inter-house sports Keller won the Basketball and Volleyball Competitions through the loyalty of our teams who always upheld our House Motto " Fair Play " and by the expert coaching of Kate and Deb. Our year was started with a dance to welcome all new girls not only to Keller but also Nightingale and Fry. Our new girls became part of our family. We all had loads of fun making the decorations for our " Tiki-Kon " dance in which we tied for second place. It was well worth the work to bring the new boarders into our friendly family atmosphere. On behalf of the boarders we should like to express our thanks to our House Mother and nurse, Miss Robinson, and the rest of the House Staff. We should also like to thank the Day School Staff who came with us on our Saturday excursions. We are both proud to have been your house heads this past year through the good times as well as the bad. Everyone of you contributed to making Keller House what it is - an individual personality which only one, who is a boarder, can understand. To the boarders and the future house heads may we wish you all the best. Love Jay and Kit 16 Boarders ' Notes •OUR HEAD BOARDERS ' We boarders here at Elmwood have had two wonderful ' heads ' , Jeanette MacDonald, fondly nicknamed ' Jay ' and- Katherine Heaman, our ' Kit ' . They have both been very successful and have fully proved their abilities to take command, to be responsible for the actions of the restless boarders, to cheer up gloomy faces, to maintain quiet when it is wanted, to help and to keep a happy atmosphere in the residence at all times. New boarders came in last September, and were often seen wandering about, hopelessly lost; but, with the patience and understanding of Jay and Kit, they were soon laughing and talking with the old crowd, and suddenly feeling as if they had lived here for years. We have had someone to turn to in trouble and this is a wonderful feeling, greatly needed, in any boarding- school. We shall also miss the cheery faces of the 6 Matric boarders. Veda and her ready smile, Gail and her funny remarks, Ellie and her full five feet and one and three quarter inches, Patsy with her Mexican accent and last but not least by far, our two wonderful, all-round head boarders, Jay and Kit.

All the years in between have been happy, but none so r " ewarding as this, when I have had the pleasure of leading Nightingale. Each and every one of you has made a wonderful contribution in her own field; 1 particularly thank the juniors, who, through their excellent academic achievements and good behaviour, have helped us win so many red stars. They may have to wait a year or two before they reap the rewards which come with senior school life, but their enthusiastic co-operation I cannot forget. To the older girls go my thanks for their keen support and efforts during the year in all house activities, climaxed by our tying for the Senior Cup on Sports Day. Also from the senior school have come many active monitors whose help could always be relied upon. This year we were honoured to have both the Head Girl and Head Prefect from Nightingale. I have been very proud to be in the house whose members so well uphold its motto; " Not for ourselves alone, " It is those " little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness " which make our characters, and though it may sometimes not seem like it, those " little acts " are noticed and remembered. So thank you for your cheerfuUness and your support. Good luck to all of you next year, wherever you may be. Love, Caroline 18 SPORTS NOTES This year once again, sports played an important role in the school activities. Sports have been under the direction of Miss, Driscoll who put in much time and effort to organize Inter- house Volleyball and Basketball. The Volleyball and Basketball game caused much excitement as all games were very close. However, Keller won both sports under the leadership of Debbie Monk and Katie Scott. Sandy Burke- Robertson and Audrey Loeb, sports captains of Fry and Nightingale, whole-heartedly encouraged their teams and the sportsmanship of all the girls was evident. The highlight of the Basketball season was the game against Strathallan. It was a quick- moving game and the score was very even. However, Elmwood won 37-35. Everyone enjoyed this exchange weekend! This year Miss. Driscoll decided to have the whole school do rhythmlic exercises on Sports Day. The school in the end rose to the occasion, for during rehearsals many people did not know the correct timing and this caused problems! Our hard work paid off! Tennis and badminton enthusiasts were often seen on the tennis courts and on the grounds, and those who practiced conscientiously had a chance to show their skill in the tournaments held. Skiing and skating were the popular winter sports. Often at break and lunch the skating rink was occupied with girls from all grades. Many thanks to all who helped with the school sports activities and I hope next year that all the girls will carry on sports with enthusiasm and a sense of fair play.

Some of the Strathallan girls stayed here at school while the others were guests of the day girls. Thank you very much, day girls, for your kind hospitality. I am sure the girls enjoyed it immensely. On Saturday morning the basketball game between Strathallan and Elmwood was played in the Rockcliffe Park Public School gym. The game was fast moving and extremely exciting. It was a close game all the way and stiff competition for both teams. It proved to be a victorious day for Elmwood as we won 37 - 35 — a close score which we achieved with the expert coaching of Miss DriscolL In the afternoon there was a hockey game at the Rockcliffe Airport Rink be- tween Ashbury and Hillfield which everyon e enjoyed! Ashbury defeated Hillfield 3-1 in a most thrilling game. It was a most successful day for Elmwood and Ashbury. To end the week-end Ashbury held ' their Football Dance ' which was also their last dance of the year. ' The Esquires ' provided the musical entertainment. We particularly enjoyed their take offs of ' The Beatles ' . Our guests left on Sunday morning to drive back to Hamilton. It was a most exciting and unusual week-end for us and I hope that these exchange visits may continue in the coming years. Our thanks to Mrs. Blyth, Miss DriscoU and to Mrs. R. S. Bruce of Strathallan for arrang- ing a wonderful week-end. Ellie Sanders Sports Captain. SKI TEAM Left to Right: Barbara Dodge, Nancy Ladner, Debbie Gill, Wendela Roberts. SKI TEAM REPORT This year, four enthusiastic skiers, Nancy, Wendela, Barb, and myself set out to represent Elmwood in the Ann Heggtveit inter-school ski meet held this year at the Vorlage Ski Club at Wakefield, Quebec. Al- though our racing ability was not quite as good as our enthusiasm we all had a wonder- ful time and agreed that it was a great ex- perience. Unfortunately our team did not place but Nancy Ladner did very well and came eighth in the combined placing. Skiing throughout the year was very good. Everyone enjoyed getting out in the sun after a hard week at school and we hope some new skiers will improve and carry just as much spirit into next year ' s competition. Best of luck anyway and remember " Success is naught; endeavour ' s all. " Debbie Gill 6M KELLER JUNIOR VOLLEYBALL Front: Barb.

" The patience of Mrs, Hicks is unmatched when it comes to disciplining a group of very talkative girls. During the year we have also practiced falling down, or beening pushed down so much that we are rather bruised; we have done character acting, such as playing an old lady with a cane and an unpleasant disposition, or a vivacious teenager. The entire drama class would like to thank Mrs. Hicks for providing us with a keen inter- est in the Dramatic Arts, and we look forward to next year, whether in the Junior or In- termediate School. Maureen O ' Neill 4A FOOTBALL ANYONE? " Hey! Hey! Take it away! Take the ball the other way! " This was Elmwood ' s theme song for a month because for the first time we attended the football semi-finals in Ottawa, It was excit- ing, thrilling, and loads of fun despite 90° heat, pouring rain, snow, and freezing weather. Of course the right team didn ' t always win but as the French say, " C ' est la football! " We weren ' t always agreed about who we wanted to win but variety is the spice of life and it was a spicy month for us this fall! When Elmwood invaded the stadium ' en masse ' (once or twice we made up half the spectator stands) the sale of peanuts and cokes rose considerably and the vendor yelling, " Red hots! Red hots! " rarely had to worry about his commission when he approached our section. " Lean to the left! Lean to the right! Sit down! Stand up! Fight! Fight! Fight! " These were familiar sounds from our corner. Even when the score was against us our cheers were the loudest and most enthusiastic at the Ottawa - Montreal, Ottawa - Toronto and Ottawa- Hamilton games. But of course it ' s good fan policy to help team spirits and keep them high - right? Go! Go! Where? Where? We want a touchdown over there! We ' d like to thank Miss Driscoll for putting up with us with such patience, I am sure that at times she wished she were 1000 miles away with her ear-drums intact and her toes warm and her hands thawed out. So we say good-bye to pigskin until next year and " Vive la football " . Gail Molyneux 6M NATIONAL BALLET On the evening of January 14th the boarders and those day girls who wished to attend went to see the " National Ballet " presentation at the Capitol Theatre, The company put on for the first time two modern ballets as well as one classical, " One in Five " , " Pas De Deux Romantique " and " Giselle " . By far the most notable was the production of " Giselle " . Giselle, a village maiden passes her time dancing with Loys, her sweetheart. The game- keeper, Hilarion a jealous rival for Giselle ' s affections, unmasks Loys as Duke Albrecht, a nobleman, already betrothed. Giselle shocked by the betrayal dies leaving Albrecht and Hilarion mourning. I should like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the boarders, to thank Mrs, Blyth for the trouble she went to in obtaining tickets for this performance. Kit Heaman 6M 26 HIGH TIME In 1962 Elmwood made its television debut on High Time and this year in January we had the pleasure of appearing on this programme again. Our panel - Caroline, Patsy, Laurie and Audrey are certainly to be commended on a very close score with Glebe Collegiate. Though we did not win, I think we all enjoyed the challenge and the excitement of appearing on television. Ingrid and Wendela, interviewing Senator Cameron, presented the Banff School of Fine Arts with great interest and our French Club members with Mme. Trottier certainly added a light touch to the programme. Unfortunately there will not be another opportunity to prove ourselves competent panelists as High Time will not be presented next year. However, we should like to thank all those who made it such a great success. Barbara Fletcher 6M HIGH TIME Front Row: Audrey Loeb, Laurie MacDonald, Patricia Watson, Caroline Nicholson.

SENIOR DRAMA Every Thursday afternoon from four until five p.m. dramatically-minded girls of 6M, 5A, and 5B could be found in the gym studying the many aspects of drama under the qualified lead- ership of Mrs. Hicks. Many a Thursday afternoon these Elmwood girls were transformed into the fascinating and challenging characters of Anastatia, Henry IV, Falstaff, Viola and Olivia. On the afternoon of December nineteenth the drama group performed a morality play " The Stable " by Charles Williams. This successful play could not have been possible without the many hours of time which Mrs. Hicks gladly devoted to this performance. Our final production of the year took place on April thirtieth. It was a workshop production in which the members of both the junior and senior drama class participated. This too was a great success and everyone enjoyed it. I am sure all the girls of our senior drama class for 1964 feel we have profited greatly from our experience. We should all like to express our deep appreciation and thanks to Mrs. Hicks for her patience with us. Brenda Firestone - 5A. THE CHOIR The Choir of 1963-1964 would like to thank Mrs. Edelsten very much for the enjoyable choir season. Our appreciation of music has been greatly extended through the numerous se- lections Mrs. Edelsten has taught us. We all feel we have profited from our experience. We practised every morning, -with much enthusiasm, the different selections which we then sang before the school and at the Christmas concert. We were all thrilled at the idea of singing on High Time and due to Mrs. Edelsten ' s patience, our performance was a success. Once again our thanks to Mrs. Edelsten for her understanding and hard work. This year, as usual, the dances had a special meaning to all of us in the senior school. But, even though the juniors could not attend, they put in much time and effort to make the dances a success. The seniors looked forward to the dances, weeks ahead, and they caused much excite- ment. Our first three dances were sponsored by Keller, Fry and Nightingale. The dance organised by Keller had the theme, the ' Kon Tiki ' . The atmosphere was chilled by the cannibals and dry ice. This was an original theme, and the boarders did much to make their dance a success. The theme of Fry ' s dance was " Winter Wonderland " , and the skies, skates, snow flakes, and pink streamers transformed the Gym into a snow paradise. Nightingale ' s dance, which was last, but not least, had the theme of " Seventh Heaven " , and the large silver moon winking at us as we entered the Gym was a topic for conversation. The spirit of these three dances was lively, due to the fact that the houses were competing for first place. Fry won, but the decision must have been difficult, as all dances were excel- lent. 5B sponsored a dance this year to raise money for our foster child Yung Sui Sang. This was an exce llent idea, and the Gym was crowded, for everyone wished to contribute to this worthy cause. The Gym was decorated simply, but the records and atmosphere were lively. Thank you, 5B, for giving us a dance and supporting Yung Sui Sang for the summer. I would like to thank everyone who helped to make all these dances a success. They were funl DANCES Audrey Laidler 5A Front Row: Louise Tolmie, Mrs. Hdelsten, Jane Blyth, Middle Row: Sue Burgess, Robin Ogilvie, Val Stansbury, Ann Thurn, Moira Phillips, Lucia Nixon, Katie Scott, Debbie Monk.

A HAPPY GROUP THE HALLOWE ' EN PARTY On October 31st, while ghosts, goblins and witches were out trick-or-treating, Elmwood held its annual Hallowe ' en Party. The gym was decorated to suit the mysterious atmosphere of this festive occasion. As the evening progressed the gym became filled with babies, old ladies, televisions, flappers. Aunt Jemimas, cats beatniks and many other exciting and exotic people. Prizes were awarded to the girls who had the most original, beautiful or most amusing cos- tumes. After the costumes were judged skits were presented by each form. The highlight of the evening was the staff skit. Later we all went to the dining room for doughnuts and something to drink. E- ' eryone, young and old, felt that the evening had been a great success thanks to the supervision of the prefects. Brenda Firestone 5A PHILOSOPHY CLUB Many a Friday night last winter a group of ' philosophers ' met to discuss the problems which puzzled and vexed them. At each of these meetings there was a guest speaker who gave a short talk and guided a discussion afterwards. Among our guests were The Rev. Bevan Monks, The Rev. J. Barnett, Canon C. L. G. Bruce, The Rev. H. O ' Driscoll, The Rev. M. Peers and The Rev. Cook. Often ' heated ' discussions would develop - such topics as ' predestination ' , ' is there such a place as hell? ' , ' free will ' and ' what is heaven? ' . Padre Barnett lent us a recording of the modern folk mass which we played many times and Canon Bruce gave us a deeper understanding of the Reformation. One evening Mr. O ' Driscoll showed us a film entitled " The Gift " . The film was a presentation, by modern symbol, music and art forms, showing that God ' s total giving of himself through Jesus demands from human lives a like giving in return. Our Philosophy Club is an integral part of our school life, a part much enjoyed, and we would like to say ' thank you ' to all our guests and to Mrs. Blyth. OEDIPUS REX On Saturday night, October 26, the girls of 5A and 6M journeyed to Glebe Collegiate to see a production of " Oedipus Rex. " This is an ancient Greek tragedy by Sophocles, and was vividly portrayed with simple sets and few elaborate costumes. A chorus related our thoughts as an audience, back to us, and this added to the rather tragic elements present throughout the play. During the intermission and going home on the bus, much discussion took place concern- ing " Oedipus. " Reactions to the production were mixed, but in History and English periods that followed, we talked about and weighed the merits of the play which we had viewed. This was an experience never to be forgotten by those who went to see " Oedipus Rex. " It gave us a glimpse of Greek ideas and culture of thousands of years ago. All who went agree that it was an enjoyable and instructive evening, and we hope to see again another production, similar in, merit, to that of " Oedipus Rex. " Debbie Duval 5A THE HALLOWEEN party PUBLIC SPEAKING In the fall Elmwood held its annual public speaking contest. The contestants were chosen by their English teachers as the best speakers in their forms. The theme of the speeches was " My Favourite Charity. " It was a morning of great excitement as girl after girl presented her speech. Although we could not all be winners everyone profited greatly from this experience. Elizabeth Greenberg won the Junior Public Speaking Prize with a very appealing speech on the Ottawa Rehabilitation Centre. Ann Thurn was the well-deserving winner of the Intermediate Prize. Her topic was the Neighbourhood Services. Because of the keen competition among the seniors Ingrid Gluzman and Diane Nancekivell tied for first place. Ingrid reminded us of the veterans who were injured during the two World Wars in the fight for our freedom. Diane ' s moving speech of her experiences working with underprivileged children inspired us all. Every- one is to be congratulated for her fine efforts. The public speaking contest was not only instructive and entertaining but it helped us de- cide to which charity we would donate money. I certainly hope that this fine tradition will be carried on in the future. THE UNITED NATIONS Address by Brenda Ruth Firestone Elmwood School, October 1963 Every year on October 24 people all over the world pay tribute to the United Nations. But what exactly is the United Nations? It is an organization which came into being on this day 18 years ago and comprises 111 countries. The United Nations is the one meeting place where the representatives of all member nations, the great and the small, the rich and the poor, the strong and the weak - spokesmen for all political views, social systems and cultures and religions, are freely heard. It is a chain held together by the collective will of the people and its strength depends on its weakest link. The basic purpose of the United Nations is to maintain order and security in the world. The United Nations is also concerned with many other matters, political, economic, social and cul- tural. In essence, it is an organization aiming at improving the wellbeing of man. Great men have been associated with the United Nations. One man deserves special tribute. Dag Hammers jold, the second Secretary General of the United Nations, served loyally the cause of peace until his untimely death in Africa when acting as a mediator in the Congo crises. To celebrate this day with parades and speeches, however, is not enough. Our goal must be to achieve for the world lasting peace and for its people full freedom from tyranny and hunger. Disarm, decolonise, develop - these are the three key objectives which the great majority of mankind strive for and which must be achieved if the principle of equal opportunity enshrined in the U.N. Charter is to be realized. Disarm so that the world shall not forever stand on the edge of hell. Decolonize so that men everywhere shall forever be free and equal in national rights and dignity. Develop, so that the present widening gap between the rich and poor shall be bridged. The most recent achievement of the United Nations is to agree to ban the testing of nuclear weapons in outer space. This is another milestone in the intensive efforts of devoted men to avoid an atomic holocaust which would mean the end of civilization as we know it. Thus, the United Nations is not only an edifice of the fulfilment of man ' s dreams. It is a challenge as well as an opportunity to all nations and their leaders to act on the premise that world security and world prosperity are indivisible. Such a cause deserves the wholehearted support of everybody believing in high moral principles. UPPER CANADA VILLAGE On the fifth of October the boarding school went by bus to Upper Canada Village - some day girls too. We left the school early arriving at the village at 11:30 a.m. We split into two groups and started our tour. Upper Canada Village was started a few years ago and houses were transferred from all around the countryside to form this famous village. These houses date from the 1800 ' s to the end of the century. I am certain everyone will agree that one of the most interesting things we saw was the agri- culture and automobile museum. We were shown a buggy called the ' Baruche ' that the Queen Mother rode in when she came to visit. After our visit to the village and a delicious lunch, we had a long trip back as our bus broke down ! Without the help of Mme. Trottier and Mrs, Eraser the trip would not have been nearly as en- joyable, Pam Foote 5 A The Elmwood Formal Friday, April 3rd dawned drizzly and cold, so typical of Elmwood for- mal weather. However in great con- trast was the electrifying atmosphere of fun and excitement which always accompanies the climax of our social season. Our formal was held at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club and once again it was a great success. Upon arrival we found that Donald Metcalfe and his band were setting our toes tapping and a " gorgeous buffet supper waiting for us. We danced the evening away and it ended with a ' Staff Twist Contest ' . Wonderful fun, our staff aren ' t all books after all! Mrs. Blyth and Dr. Laidler were the win- ners with Mr. Mrs. Roberts in second place. Our thanks go to Mar- die Aldous and her com- mittee, Debbie Gill, Sandy Burke- Robertson and Barbara.

" AO I SAW IT HAPPEN As I walked through the halls of the Vincent Hospital for the Deaf 1 heard the playful shouts of the small children. 1 had worked as a nurse at the hospital for two years and had grown to know most of the children quite welL Most of them had been deaf since birth or from some disease which they had had when they were quite young. 1 felt an obligation to these children because I felt that since God had given me the wonder- ful gift of hearing 1 should help those less fortunate. At that moment I was thinking of the new device which I had been aiding Dr. Rowland in assembling for the past six months. It was a new hearing aid which could help greatly in the teaching of the deaf. With a simple operation it would enable the totally deaf to hear almost perfectly. Working with Dr. Rowland had been a very exciting experience for me, especially since I knew that if the aid proved to be successful, the first patient would be little Jimmy Brown who had been at the hospital for five years. This meant that Jimmy might have a chance to lead a normal life. This w as the day that the aid was to be tested and as I walked to the lab I prayed that it would prove successful. After the tests, the aid was approved and the operating table was prepared for Jimmy. Soon we were sitting beside Jimmy ' s bed waiting for him to awake to show us the result. Suddenly one eye opened and then the other. We all waited breathlessly, while Jimmy ' s mother said his name. Jimmy did not reply. I tensed up, and again she repeated " Jimmy " . Then came the results! Jimmy slowly sat up and held out his arms to his mother saying as well as he could, " Mommy, I hear you. " Two week later as I waved good-bye to Jimmy I could not help feeling that I had helped to give him his hearing. I felt that I had seen it all happen - the happiness of a small boy at hearing his mothers voice for the first time.

Klarika Liszy 5A Jennifer Coyne 4B THE ROADWAY NON-CONFORMIST My mother is one of the many non- conformists of the road. She loves speed and is very vivacious in her driving which ex- presses originality of thought. Seat belts are decorations although I heard complaints for over a month on their expense. She creates extra lanes on the road or takes up twol She might run over a squirrel but it runs out from under the car on the other side. If she finds herself in a ditch, she drives out very nonchalantly. Yellow lights are driven through with her calm self-assurance that they will not turn red, different from most people who race with time through orange lights. On winter icy roads she steps on the gas with the result that the tires spin even more helplessly. After I tell her to slow down to allow the itires to get a grip, she tells me she likes the spinning noise. In the trunk is a shovel and sandbags for emergency, but I doubt with all the canvasses in the back whether she would ever be able to find them. Her main fear is that she will one day drive away without detaching her outside heating cord and drag the whole house down the street with her. My fears are many! Klarika Liszy 5A BALLAD OF A MUSTANG In the last rays of the setting sun. Outlined bright and clear. Stood a noble mustang guarding his herd. Proud and with nothing to fear. But mournful and low from the hills below, Came a long, eerie howl. The message flashed from one to another: The wolves were on the prowl! Narrow and steep, up hill and down dale. The wolves followed close behind. The mustang guarding his little ones Was not at the head but the hind. Then out like a flash, shot a wolf in the night. And the mustang bared his teeth. Then quick as a wink, encircled by eyes Surrounded; and he must fight these! He kicked, he bit, he was fighting for life. Must our noble mustang die? Though greatly outnumbered win he did And back to his herd he must fly. This is the ballad of a mighty horse, There were many like him long ago. O take me back to the wide prairie Where again I may see them roam. THE LUMBERJACK (in the Chaucerian manner) This lumberjack was poor as poor could be. And not too suited to go out to tea, For he was big, tall and really dirty. And his age was at least forty plus thirty. Upon his head was a certain hat Worn in all seasons, we can be sure of that. Never changing were his pants of brown. Not even to sleep would he use a night gown. His shirts of flannel, of which he had two One which was red and the other of blue. Were his pride and joy because you see They were made by his daughter who was twenty three. Although nearly always drunk with ale He would never refuse telling a child a tale. For he was good, and terribly kind And a more sincere man would be hard to fi nd. Julie Blackburn 5B AN EVENING I WELL REMEMBER The hall was darker Than ever before As a shimmer of white Went past my door I lay for a moment While all was still Then 1 heard a crash And down she fell. This was my sister My wonderful sister The one I loved so well But never more to see Or never more to hear She went through the doors The huge french doors Leading out to the patio. Pauline Robinson 4B Beverley Erlandson 5B 43 TURNS AGAIN HOME I walk through the cool sloping shadows Violet-tipped, emerald, indigo. And watch the soft smudges of the bats, Wifting through the moistness. And count the soft-glowing chips embedded In the coal dust of the sky. Great Bear, arching mistily downwards. To dip from the dark rain -pocked face of the lake. And I fell the soft whisper of the owl, side slipping softly. Into the shadows of the oaks, I hear the rabbit scream. I touch the wind ruffling softly through my hair, Feeling it lift each lock, and slip questing fingers Over my head, my ears, my throat. I breathe the night, the smell of damp grass. And see the rain-washed violet faces, purple and dog-tooth. And sense the earthworms fleeing from m y step. Were they all that swift? Did I perhaps kill? Each leaf lifting, shaking free of its tear- drop burden, Slipping back into place. A shower of heavy tears joining the night, pattering upon the earth. " Where is the eagle " , I wonder, I saw him during the long day, hanging high. Wheeling, swinging-suspended in the sun. Lifted by the wind, lifted by . , . who knows. Striding through the butter-gold sky. Is he huddled in his aerie, shaking the rain from his browness? Or does he too, lift his silvery head. Feeling the cooling comfort of the rain, " 1 joying its gentle stroking. Does he feel the compassionate purity. Hear the chiming silence? I wonder. And does he feel, in his solitary nest, the loneness, The empty solitude I know? I walk the long lane between the stooping trees, (Are they reaching for me?) Toward the empty house. And leave, my life, sleeping on the hillside. Under the caressing hands Of the rain. Laurie McDonald 6M BUGAMARIA WITH THE BEATLES " I wanna hold your hand " Comes from a famous song. Sung by four swinging creatures From a crazy, swinging land. Home for them is Liverpool, Clothes for them are tight. Hair for them is shaggy. Life for them is bright. Married John ' s the founder, George plays lead guitar, Paul ' s the girls ' favorite While their drummer ' s Ringo Starr. Life is work but fun and fame. Dreamy looks have all; Concludes- for us their famous name - Of course they are the Beatles. The Beatles are a lively group That bring loud screams galore. Their name is found in every home But what does it stand for? B ' s for bedlam, E marks ecstacy, A ' s for attire, T shows talent, L brings liveliness, E ' s for eagerness and S - the summary of a sensation. Thus: Four boys there came from Liver- pool With shaggy manes that made girls drool And forming the group of Beatles are- John, Paul, George and Ringo Starr. Cathy Firestone 5B " TO A WILDCAT " - with apologies to Will Shakespeare Shall I compare thee to a summer ' s day? Thou art more bright; we rightly call thee " hot " Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, Rough roads don ' t faze, such darling springs you ' ve got. Sometimes too fast your fourscore horses speed And oft the needle ' s ' scapes my eyes wind- dimmed. " Max Thirty! " This command we all must heed. Lest thirty pieces by the judge are skimmed. But thy eternal glamour shall not fade. Thy pep uplifts me like a potent drug. 1 call thee sweet as any car yet made. But blush to hear that TV selling plug. " The wildcat is the car the wealthy bore Would like his friends to see outside his door. " Caroline Nicholsort 6M THE MYSTERIOUS NOISE This story begins in a deserted old town in the middle of nowhere. For some strange reason the whole class of 4B 4C were lost. Mrs. Laidler our faithful leader of the tribe was in a panic stricken daze because she had lost her tea container. What would the class do without any food in the middle of nowhere. Mrs. Laidler lead our party into an old house. We bedded down there for the night and hoped in the morning we could find our way home or at least find something to eat. We were awakened by an odd whistling and scratches in the middle of the night. These noises seemed to come from the attic. We all got up, trembling with every step we took, we went up the stair- case and down the dark hall finally, we saw another flight of stairs. The scratches and whistling became louder. You could almost hear everyone ' s heart pound. The only question in our minds was what lay ahead. The stairs creaked with every move. At the top of the stairs a trap door was seen. Mrs. Laidler asked for some volunteers to open it and see what the noises were. For some queer reason I put my hand up and found myself and Pauline pushing on the door. Then it gave away! Scared as I was, I went ahead. On the third floor there was a dusty library and I look- ed down at the floor in horror! There were mice and rats scurrying around and scratching for food. The whistling noise came from the wind going fiercely through the room. I also noticed a branch scratching against the house. These mysterious noises made everyone feel uncomfort- able so no one went to sleep that night. In the morning we were finally found by the police who were sent by Elmwood School to look for us. We were all right, but a little hungry by the time we got home. Jocelyn Baker 4B 43 DREAMS A DREAM OF TOMORROW What are dreams made of. Only angels can say. Of substance and sunlight Of night and of day? A cloud passing o ' er us May change in our dreams. To horses, and chariots Fast-flying in the breeze. And the sun in the heavens While shining on high May change oceans of blue To gold and we sigh. To think, how lovely. If dreams did come true. Would we, like the angels. Have happiness, too? Beverley Erlandson 5B My Friday night lesson had just ended, and as 1 walked down the dark staircase, I began to ponder over the scene which happened just one floor above me. Were these ballet lessons really worth it? Were the tired muscles and aching toes ever going to help my career? Were the clumsy hands of the boys ever going to lift me to stardom? It did not seem likely. I was just one in a million who took ballet lessons to become graceful and walk properly. At least that is what my friends at school thought. But to me those ballet lessons meant some -thing different. I did not know what, and that was why I was undecided. Sometimes I felt that I wanted to go on, and at others I felt that it was all worthless, I did not know what I wanted. The cold air outside refreshed me because I was hot and tired. As I walked home through the snow, I forgot about those ballet lessons. When I reached the front door of our house I was feeling better and so entered. I had my supper, did some homework, then prepared for bed. Just as my tired limbs fell onto the soft mattress, I realized how nice my bed felt to my sore muscles. The Sandman came that night, and with him he brought a most wonderful dream. I It was opening night, and backstage the per- formers were running about madly in the last three minutes before the performance. My partner and I were practising a lift which we sometimes falter- ed on. I wore a beautiful blue tutu, trimmed with silver. My hair was piled on top of my head, and around it was a silver tiara, I had never had any- thing so lovely. Inside I was shaking, but I could not let myself show it - I musn ' t! The music began. I watched the others take their cues and wished each ' Good luck " . Then came my cue, before I knew it I was on the stage. I stopped in the centre and began to dance. My arms, as if by magic, rose above my head and formed an arc . On and on I went, my feet flying before nie, I danced faster and faster. My head spun, I jumped, and pointed, and bent and whirled. Suddenly my part- ner ' s firm hands were about my waist and he lifted me up higher - higher until I rose to a towering height. From there I seemed to float back onto the stage, and with a grand spin I left it. The music stopped, and I stood behind the curtains in glorious triumph as the audience clapped and cheer- ed, I took an encore again and again. Finally it stop- ped and I stood behind the curtain with tears of joy trickling down my face. I was a success! I sat up in bed, and felt my cheeks. They were wet with tears. It was then that Iknewthat the lessons were worth it. J ane Archambault 5C 46 A NEW FALL COAT. This new style in Fall coats is sheared brown beaver, with a pastel niink collar.

And famous is He Who hung in the rain. On the wood of a tree. He did not complain once; Not angry was He. He spoke not of pain once. It should have been me. Hanging there with the nails In His hands - hurt was He - Going right through His feet, too; Not there should He be. His place is on God ' s right hand, God ' s dear Son is He, Who suffered and died there That we might be free. The rain did not cool Him, But joyful was He, On hearing from a thief. Hanging, too, on a tree. The thief begged forgiveness For his sons, did he. Jesus did bless him Because of his plea. The rain teemed down harder! In great pain was He. . .

Debbie Duval 5A BALLAD OF THE LOVE OF THE LITTLE MERMAID It was the time of deathly storms Upon the open sea. When rose a mermaid from its depths And scanned this strange countrie. She was a nymph of golden curl; A siren voice had she. A pearl-white tail of cockle scale Enhanced her strange beauty, Toweard the we t lay a ship at rest. And dark clouds to the east. Upon the deck, a noble knight Kept company at a feast. Fast to his vessel swam the maid, Fast did her sea-heart beat. Oh, why was she not meant to be A land maid blest with feet? Alas, alas, the sky grew black; The waves rose strong and high. The little mermaid knew she then Her bold knight ' s fate was nigh. The ship she reeled and sank below And all the crew but one. The youthful knight, he swam the night ' Till the dawn of the morning sun. The mermaid heard him breathe his last; Her arms around him twined. Salt tears of sorrow stained her cheeks As she sank to join her kind. Susan Burgess 5A 47 THE HUMANE SOCIETY TO THE RESCUE November seems to be the most despress ing month, and as 1 walked along the wet, rough, little country road, my thoughts wandered to the pleasant summer months. The tall trees, black from the recent rain, stood gaunt and still against the gray, bleak heavens. Everything around looked dull and colourless. Yet suddenly, 1 saw a spot of colour ahead. As I approached it, I realized that it was a little lump of fiery red. Stooping over it, I was startled by two glazed, lifeless black eyes staring back at me, along a sharply pointed nose. A fox! It was lean and bony, and its rich fur was now matted and soiled by the recent rain. For five minutes 1 watched it, half -afraid; and still it didn ' t move. With fresh fear, I slowly became aware of the fact that it was dead. Giving a cry of pity, I ran down to the nearest kiosk, and phoned the Ottawa Humane Society, telling them the approximate area. Then Isat sadly beside the poor little creature, and waited for the truck to arrive. The small blue vehicle removed the body to the Shelter, while 1 watched until 1 could no longer see the shining white cross; walking home meanwhile in a very depressed state of mind. Next day, 1 visited the shelter on Bayview Road, and was informed that the fox had died of starvation. However, a much more alarming fact had been determined, the fox was female and was obviously nursing. Tears ran down my face as 1 was told how she had died looking for food which she could turn into milk for her babies. The cycle of nature had to continue, despite all, and so the brave mother was forgotten in the endeavour to locate and save her fox kittens: I was happy only in knowing that the creature ' s purpose was being recognized and realized. I asked if I could accompany them on the hunt, and was amazed by the clever methods in which they traced all tracks to her den. I knew a lot about baby animals, but I was totally un- prepared for the sight which met my eyes. Curled up in one great ball were three furry, red lumps of downy fur and fat little paws. They could not have been more than a week old and their eyes were still closed. Picking one up, I felt a lot of protruding bones and sharp facial features; too sharp for anything so tiny. One man gave them prepared milk he had brought along because he knew they would be starving. We lifted them into the truck, and 1 was allowed to cuddle them to warm them up, on the way home. After that 1 went almost every day to the Shelter to feed them, and look after them. I viewed with joy their reactions to their first sight of the world, and their first trip out of their cage. So it was that December, January and February passed by, with me becoming more and more devoted to these creatures. During these months 1 worked very closely with the Humane Society, and was amazed by their capability, and their gentle understanding of animals. The creatures at the Shelter were loved, and well -treated, as well as being given every opportunity to recover from illness, or to find a new home. But now the foxes playful nips and friendly scratchings became increasingly sharp, and yet I almost cried when 1 was told they would have to be released on the first warm, sunny day. Two weeks later, the day on which my little friends were to be started on a new life, arrived. 1 dressed slowly, deliberately, spending most of the long bus -ride into town in a moody reverie over the past few blissful moriths At the country meadow, however, my sadness was forgotten for a while as we had a last grand frolic. All too soon the truck was needed on duty, so we reluctantly started towards it, shooing the young foxes away. For a while they stood there, cocking their heads in a quizzical manner. Then, realizing that they were free, they dashed away across the field. I watched them until they were only specks of fiery brown in the morning sun. As they disappeared, 1 realized that the cycle of nature was forever being continued, and that the Humane Society was playing a major role in the play of life. Victoria Nicholson 4A This is the winning essay in the Humane Society Essay Contest, Rockcliffe Park Section, Grade 8. Vicky ' s essay brought the much prized Cruikshank Trophy back to Elmwood. LOVE Ah, love, art thou so ruthless as to have no pity For one as desolate as I? With thy unsounded Bounty, yet not a drop for me? Art thou so weak And proud in all thy fullness that even such a wretch As 1. cannot from thy abundant store be spared An atom of thy graces? O cursed passion! Thou ' st cleft an anguished heart in twain, tormented, plagued. Afflicted tender feelings; hurled thoughts into an Abyss, whose profound and murky depths, void of all The warmth of light; envelope me with distressing Dark; scourge me with unceasing pain; distraught, a heart. Bereft of any hope, lies throbbing at my feet; Forlorn, a soul cries out and flees the night in vain Thus loveless youth is as life without promise: empty, worthless. Carolyn Jones 5B 48 ANXIOUS MOMENTS The young man sat waiting in the next room wishing it was all over. For three days it had been like this and now he was pale and haggard. Yesterday evening he had slipped into unconciousness only to be rudely a- wakened by the telephone. It had been a call saying that it was about to happen. These last few hours had been the longest he had ever spent. Everyone had been kind, cheerful and happy but he couldn ' t feel as they did. Now some intuition was telling him that it couldn ' t be a simple operation and something was sure to happen. A lump rose in his throat. He wished he had never been Sorn. They had both wanted it however, so now here he was in the waiting- room, the floor beside him littered with finger nails and cigarette butts. He thought he heard footsteps in the hall but it was his imagi- nation. How long had it been since the last telephone call the evening before? One year, or just seven hours? How many days in an hour? Then as he lit another cigarette and found it to be his last, he did hear footsteps in the hall. He jumped up in eager anticipation. No, not the one he had been waiting for, just another young man, perhaps in his late thirties. Disappointed he slowly dropped to his seat again. To take his mind off the present problem, he studied this new arrival. He didn ' t like his suit of tie. (Anything to keep his mind off it) His hair was too greasy, (Anything .... and. . . . ) Again he jumped up and breathed deeply. As he was about to sit once more, he saw a nurse poke her smiling face in the door. " It ' s a boy, Mr. McLean, " she said. Jennifer Chaplin 4A SONNET (English or Shakespearian) Excitement dulled while doubt pervades the air Committees must their myriad tasks arrange And standers - bye suggest as we despair, " Let ' s talk about the formal for a change! " Oh yes, a few can talk with peace of mind About the dress, the boy, the coiffure chic. But many dates and gowns have yet to find; They listen, hating this complacent clique. The weeks slip by in no time; tension grows; The art room trembles in last minute rush The night before, for sixth form no repose; In vain the staff commands their voices hush The evening comes, the load, it seems, of years Chased by sweet music softly disappears.
